Sharland v Sharland

Divorce – Financial provision. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, had dismissed a wife's appeal against a judge's decision to perfect a draft consent order inspite of the wife's request not to seal the order in circumstances where the wife had discovered, after the draft order had been drawn up, that the husband had fraudulently misrepresented the value of his shareholding in a very successful software business. The Supreme Court allowed the wife's appeal, deciding that the husband's fraud had vitiated the consent order with the result that the judge should have set the order aside.
